In our podcast discussion, we discuss the significant outside-in market forces and cascading disruptions now occurring across multiple industries, and how manufacturers should address their process and technology support strategies to better manage these conditions, both today and in the new normal of constant market and business change. We address how classic just-in-time thinking is being redefined from zero or just-enough inventory to hybrid pull-push models balanced for supply network risk and resiliency. Conversation is further focused on the notions of Connected Manufacturing and Cloud based connectivity for factory management, and on the changing needs for lean processes and factory management capabilities in the post COVID-19 new normal.
